Our PGA Professionals

Nigel Pearce - Director of Golf & Head PGA Professional

I have been the Director of Golf at Sleaford since June 2018 as well as being the Head Professional since September 2006. I moved to Lincolnshire from Sheffield in February 2002 to be the Assistant Professional to Jamie Wilson. I attained my PGA Qualification in 1999 whilst working at Howley Hall Golf Club in Leeds.  I am a fully qualified PGA Rules Referee as well as a trained Powakaddy repair agent.  I have also attained the Golf Club Management certificate in 2015.  I  regularly compete in local and national Pro AM tournaments and enjoyed my career highlight in 2014 when I competed in the Lombard PGA National Pro Am Final at Gleneagles where I managed to finish in 5th place. My goal is to continually strive to improve the whole Club and the facilities for all members.

Daniel Thomas - PGA Professional & Pro Shop Manager

I joined the professional team in 2021 as an Assistant Professional from Middleton Hall Golf Club. Since joining the team, I have passed the PGA Training Programme, gaining qualified status and took on the role of Pro Shop manager. Alongside running the day-to-day operations of the Pro Shop, I have a very keen interest in coaching, offering lessons to golfers of all ages and abilities, including the managing and delivery of a Junior Academy on a Saturday morning. I recently became a Flightscope launch monitor owner, which allows me to provide an in depth data analysis when developing player performance or custom fitting. I am a keen golfer, regularly competing in local and national PGA tournaments.

Jake Craddock - Trainee PGA Professional

Having previously gained a First Class Bachelors Degree in Sports Coaching, in 2023 I decided to build on my passion for coaching and utilise my skillset within a golf-specific capacity, embarking on beginning my PGA qualification. Through a combination of my university education, and vast golfing experience within numerous county, regional and national squads, I aim to provide a holistic and well-rounded approach to golf coaching for players of all ages and abilities that deep-dives further than just the technical aspects of the golf swing.
